INSIDE OUTSIDE - a case for the book 6 Jul 2014

I have been invited to be one of the speakers at the Association of Book Crafts' international conference < INSIDE OUTSIDE - a case for the book > which will be held at the Auckland University of Technology over Labour weekend this year. See http://abc-nz.org for more details.

I will be talking about being one of a growing number of so-called ‘slashers’ as in - artist/ printer/ binder /teacher. Slashers are part of an emerging trend known as the ‘portfolio career’, which can be a very rewarding career move if you are the right personality type.

My schedule varies dramatically from hour to hour, day to day, week to week and I am forced to compartmentalise my time to ensure I get some thing completed before moving to the next task. I will be sharing some tips on how to do this.

My income is very lumpy and comes from part time consultancy and business support work and a personal business selling my creative outputs. It came out of necessity but even if I won Lotto tomorrow I don’t think I would do anything different.

I hope to be able to meet many bookbinders, printers, calligraphers, librarians, conservators, artists and hobbyists who will be attending the conference. The highlights for me are being able to hear from internationally recognised bookbinders and attend workshops that I would normally have to travel overseas for.
